(née BALE)

Peacefully with family at her side, Alice passed away at Rosewood Lodge in Stonewall, Manitoba on November 14, 2020, at the age of 90 years.
Mom was predeceased by her husband Walter; parents, Emmanuel and Ludivine Bale; her son Michael; son-in-law Paul Brant; and brothers, Ernest, Raymond and Emmanuel.
Mom will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her daughters, Linda Brant, Beverly Meilleur (Réal) and Charlene Boes (Kelly); grandchildren, Kim, Teri, Jenny, Ryan, Sarah, Corbin and Carter; and great- grandchildren, Peyton, Taylor, Cole, Sarah, Emily, Jayden and Zander. She also leaves behind her sister Bernice Gunderson and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mom was born in Fisher Branch, Manitoba on March 18, 1930. After growing up on the farm, Mom ventured to Winnipeg and worked at Eaton's in the accounting department. She soon returned to the Interlake where she took a teaching position at the Hayek School, where she met Walter. They were married on December 31, 1955 (almost 50 years) and together, side by side, they toiled on both his father's homestead and their own quarter section of land. Somehow between chores, raising their four children and cooking up a feast at every meal, they managed to find time for a game of cards, laughs, giggles and spending quality time with family and friends. They moved to Arborg after retiring from the farm. When her health started to deteriorate, Mom moved to Sunrise Lodge in Arborg for a while and then into a personal care home in Stonewall.
Mom will forever be remembered for her legendary cooking, including her signature cinnamon buns, cabbage rolls, perogies and many other recipes that will live on with her children and grandchildren. Most of all, Mom was known for her unconditional love and the selfless support she gave to her family.
In accordance with Mom's wishes, cremation has already taken place. A private family ceremony will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, we ask you to spend quality time with your loved ones, laugh and smile and create treasured memories. A donation can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba for those who wish.
We would like to thank the health care staff during her stay at the Sunrise Lodge in Arborg and to Cindy Genik, who always had a special place in Mom's heart. We also would like to thank the staff of Rosewood Lodge for providing Mom with the wonderful care and compassion she deserved.

Rest in Peace Mom. WE LOVE YOU.
Always in our hearts,
forever in our memories.

  • We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Alice. I remember the beautiful time we had when I was little and we went to visit your mom and dad on the farm in Arborg.
